Partners from across the borough are coming together in four local boards focused on health, growth and community resilience
More from: Transforming the community budget pilots
The community budget pilot in Wirral will be the main driver for a complete reorganisation of the way the council is organised in terms of how services are designed and delivered.
The focus for the pilot lies across three areas - addressing health inequalities, driving economic growth and increasing neighbourhood resilience.
Partners share a determination to work with service users to change the way services are delivered - ensuring the people and communities who need the support get it.
Wirral will also work to reduce demand for services by empowering communities and making them more resilient.
Services and decisions will be devolved to communities that will decide how local needs are met.
Wirral has already been successful in driving economic growth to the area, but believes more can be done, particularly to ensure local people can access job opportunities.
Wirral’s public service board was established in November 2012 as the strategic driver for transformation.
Local boards will be set up at an operational level in January, based on the four parliamentary constituencies of Wirral. This approach brings together a full complement of public sector partners from local government, health, police, fire, housing, employment and education.
